|A Government Fusion Center is Watching You.|
Homeland Security "Fusion" Centers
"Instead of strengthening our counter terrorism efforts, they have too often wasted money and stepped on Americans' civil liberties."
----Senator Tom Coburn, R-Okla.
Gary Rule #1: People are fucking idiots. . . . . that goes triple for politicians.
The moron political hacks in both parties eagerly voted to create and fund the 1984 Big Brother Homeland Security spy programs and then dare to claim they are a waste of money and damage the Bill of Rights.
A scathing bipartisan Senate report assailed the Department of Homeland Security for overseeing a network of supposed intelligence-sharing centers that, according to the study, did little to track or disrupt terrorist threats.
"The fusion centers often produced irrelevant, useless or inappropriate intelligence reporting to DHS, and many produced no intelligence reporting whatsoever," the report said.
But did you see anyone in Congress introduce a bill to abolish the DHS? No. The report is more CYA bullshit.
DHS fusion centers
A Police State is being created right in front of our eyes. If you say the wrong thing, support the wrong candidate or join a protest, your government knows it. "Fusion Centers" are collecting information on ordinary citizens. These centers are funded by our government but answer to no one.
The so-called fusion centers were created in the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks. More than 70 state and local centers backed by federal funds were created since 2003, with as much as $1.4 billion in federal taxpayer support committed to the project between 2003 and 2011.
What began as an attempt to put local, state and federal officials in the same room analyzing the same intelligence has instead cost huge amounts of money for data-mining software, flat screen televisions and, in Arizona, two fully equipped Chevrolet Tahoes that are used for commuting, investigators found.
"The ... investigation could identify no reporting which uncovered a terrorist threat, nor could it identify a contribution such fusion center reporting made to disrupt an active terrorist plot," the report said. It said nearly a third of the 610 reports reviewed were "never published for use within DHS" and elsewhere in the intelligence community.
When the program did address terrorism, it sometimes did so in ways that infringed on civil liberties. The fusion centers have made headlines for circulating information about the American Civil Liberties Union, activists on both sides of the abortion debate, war protesters and advocates of gun rights.

1984 is Here
"Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire."
Everyday we see the Elites pulling the Big Brother noose just a little bit tighter around our necks.
Below are a few of our most recent stories on the march to a 1984 State:
